Nightly Clock

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (18 votes)

Nightly Clock is a clock designed for your bedside, originally from BlackBerry10 but hugely improved for Sailfish, rebuilt for Sailfish OS with a Silica UI for the native feel.

The App is customisable with colours (Ambience included), custom Alarm tones, clock styles, font sizes, wallpapers, weather and more.


Documentation for custom clock stlyes:


Source Code: Github


The interval alarm feature is for all of those people who want that extra lie in, with interval alarm you can set Nightly clock to briefly sound the alarm then auto shut off to remind you it's time to get up without the need to touch the device.


You can find a black background in Settings-Customise-Wallpaper for bedside use or set to auto show from the main settings,

Also please note that the UI components do move around ever so slightly to prevent any screen burn in issues, so don't be alarmed (sorry bad pun) if they seem off center.


Please do leave any feedback no matter how small, this App was built in free time and with a bunch of great testers.

Devices running SailfishOS 4.0 + supported


If you are experiencing problems installing please try the pkcon refresh command from the terminal, as some devices are missing the qt5-qtlocation library needed for the weather side of the App
